Who We Are


We are B healthy together, a community-led health project in South West Edinburgh.Our aim is to improve health and well-being within the communities by providing a variety of social health activities. In particular, we focus on how health is affected by everyday life and is as much about the quality of your emotional and social situation as about your experience of disease or disability.

We provide a range of free services including cookery classes and community meals, physical activities such as exercise classes and a walking group, creative groups such as a knitting club and a gardening group and other health related activities throughout the year.  We aim to increase confidence and skills, reduce social isolation and empower our community to take steps that positively impact their health and wellbeing.

Local people are central to the planning and delivery of all our services; we are rooted within our community.  We provide a range of volunteering opportunities and could not operate without the invaluable support of these volunteers. 

We work in close partnership with many local organisations to address gaps in health improvement activities and collectively impact on the wider health inequality agenda.

What Our Community Says

“Before I joined your walking group, I had forgotten what it feels like to feel happy”
“It’s great to have face to face conversation and company as ‘Facebook’ or ‘text’ don’t cut it when you feel lonely”
“I started volunteering due to moving to the area three years ago and having my son due to start Primary School I wanted something for me to fill my time. Since then I’ve joined the Walking Group and help with events and have run some art and craft classes. I could not fault the staff and organisation – me and my son would be lost without them.”
“This class is brilliant coz you can take the kids and it has an amazing instructor- always makes us push ourselves and sweat! I always feel so much better afterwards!!” “Great class for every new mum it has made me stronger and fitter and it builds self confidence. Great way to get to know other mums with kids in the local area” “This class is fab it’s got me feeling positive and finally have the confidence to say i can do this. Recommend to all mums ?”
